interpreted by Tenoch Huerta (‘Narcos: Mexico’), Prince Namor made his MCU debut in ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘.
Despite some changes in his origin, the character’s look pleased the public because of its faithfulness to the source material.
However, some concept art shared by the illustrator Joshua James Shaw show the character in a costume even more faithful to the comics.
In the images, Namor wears the costume first designed by John Romita.
In the caption, Shaw he wrote:
“Namor – 2021 – Wakanda Forever After – For this version, I was trying to keep the classic black and blue design from the John Romita Sr comics…”
So, will we one day see the mutant with this costume on the big screen?
Remembering that ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘ comes to disney+ in day February 1st.
The sequence also has Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong’o, Dominique Thorne, Winston Duke, Martin Freeman, Danai Gurira and Michaela Coel.
